Anyone who embraces the job of dad deserves recognition on Father’s Day. That includes our own dads (whether they’re still with us or not), other dads in the family, and our dad friends. And it most certainly includes any sons-in-law who are helping bring up those precious grandchildren.
For a son-in-law, a simple Father’s Day greeting is enough to show that you value his efforts as a dad. But what to say? That’s not always clear cut, especially if the relationship – as is the case in many relationships between in-laws – isn’t so tight-knit.
Regardless of what type of relationship you have with your son-in-law, you can find a fitting Father’s Day wish for him in the following list. That’s because we’ve assembled a wide assortment of options, from the straightforward to the silly. The greetings may differ in tone, but they all send a loud-and-clear message that you appreciate your son-in-law and everything he does for his family.
